Our curriculum is carefully-constructed so each unit builds on what you have learned in the last.

Every term your portfolio will grow in quality, complexity and professionalism.

Creative assessment not exams

Hear from industry professionals

You will also hear from visiting professionals from industry about the latest practice in the workplace.

Many visiting speakers are acclaimed in their field – whether A-list photographers, to professionals who work on blockbuster Hollywood movies or hit video games, to creatives in London fashion houses or design agencies.
